That`s exactly why, when we find weapons/ammo caches, we call in the combat engineers & EOD guys to destroy them. You never attempt to use any of it, they come in and catalog what was found (amount & type of weapons/ammo) take pictures/video and then blow that sh*t up!

This kind of stuff dates back to the first world war when the Brits altered hand grenades and bombs to make them explode in the user`s hand or weapon.

Speaking of which, y`all should click on an ad here at IAB just to help them out and make sure they`re here in the future. Hell, if everyone clicked on 5 a day every day they could afford to hire me :-) hint hint

Good for them. Spoiling the black market ammunition is a good idea. No one but thugs and criminals is buying that stuff. If it`s a just cause, like overthrowing the harsh Syrian government, rebels will be backed by UN or US or EU who will supply them.
